BE10CRATIC DISTRICT CON YESTION To the I>emocrat» of the Eleventh Congressional District: Pursuant to the order of the Democratic state central committee, the delegates to the district convection are called to meet in the city of Peru on Tuesday, January llth, 1898, at 10 o'c?ocfe a. m., for the purpose of •electing one member of the Democratic state central commltiee lor •aid district for the ensuing two years. The basis of representation In said convention, 88 fixed by said committee, will be one delegate Tor each 200 vote? or fraction of 100 or ever cast for the head of the Bryan electoral ticket. A general Invitation Is extended to the Democrats of the district to attend this convention. The delegates to said convention will be selected in each county on or before January 8th, 1898,. by county er township meetings, according to local custom and upon the call of the •nalrmen of the several counties. S. E. COOK, Chairman Congressional Com. Huntlngton, Ind,, Dec. 18,1897. SJECKKTAEY GAGE says he will not resign until asked to do so. It is understood that McKinley will give him a chance to change his currency icheme before asking him to quit. TnnNew York bankers are opposed to postal savings banks. They claim that much of the active money «f the country would be locked up '1 n the government treasury under such »system. IT is now believed that President McKinley will soon send in a special message to congress on the money question, urging action. The monetary commission will present its reform scheme to the country next Monday, It will perhaps be in line with Secretary Gage's recommendation IT will not be a very cheerful beginning ol the Jsew Year to the 50,000 laboring people of New England employed to the cotton manufactories of that section of the Uaion. A general reduction of from 10 to 15 per cent will be made in their wages and they are too poor to carry on a •trlke. PRESIDENT OOMPERS of the American Federation of Labor has made a Tery respectful reply to Secretary Gage, in which he sets forth theevlis of the single gold standard and the probable effects of surrendering the privilege of furnishing the money supply of the country to the national banks. MCKIKLEY, through Senator Fairbanks, sent this message to the Indiana Republicans: "1 am going Do keep the bond. I am going to vindicate the sound money plank in the St. Louis platform." Now, if anybody can interpret what the president means, he will be entitled to be recognized as a leading mind reader. THK average ad valorem protection on cotton manufactures under the Wilson law was 48.75 per cent The Dlngley law increased It to 52.23 per cent, which is almost prohibitory. Thus the duties on cotton have gone up 9 per cett and the wages of the cotton operators go down 11 per cent. Protection may protest something or somebody, but it doesn't protect labor. COL. CONGER, of Ohio, is pouring hoc shot icto Mark Hanna. For rears Col. Conger has been recognized M one of the leading Republicans of the state. He charges that Hanna has been a traitor to the party in the past and that he deserves no favors, He likewise charges that he is simply an agent of corporations and an anemy of the common people. In •peaking of the Dingley tariff and Banna's connection with that meanure, he says: • 'We can look the Dingley bill over and can point to nearly a hundred million dollars taxes levied directly upon the poor people of the country and place 1 ) In the pockets of the trusts. Fifteen million dollars is leTied annually upon tin plate, and lh« proceeds placed In the pockets of the tin plate trust. Thirty millions of dolUra a year is levied upon hides and leather, and the money placed In the pockets of the leather trust. "The duties In toe Dingley bill are pUMd n hlfh that the bill itself is aa ratlre failure as a revenue meas- «r«.

I had inflammation, enlargement and displacement of the womb. The doctor wanted me to take treatments, but I bad just begnn taking- Mrs. Pmkham's Compound, and my husband Said I had better wait and see how mnch g-ood that ivould do ::ne. I was iio sick when I began with her medicine,! could hardly be on my feet. I had the backache constantly, also headache, and was so dizzy. I had heart trouble, it seemed as though my heart was in my throat at times choking- me. I could not walk around and I could not lie down, for then my heart would beat so f:ist I would feel as thoug-h I was smothering. I had to sit up in bed nights in order to breathe. I was so weak I could not do anything. I have now taken several bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and used three packages of Sanative Wash, and can say I am perfectly cured. I do not think I could have lived long if Mrs. Pink- hum's medicine had not helped me.— MBS. JOSEPH PETEBSOS, 513 .East St., 'Warren, Pa. to the present time, Is about $45,000,000—and all this sacrifice is caused that Mr. Hanna may pay his political debts, and create a mammoth campaign fund. If our party indorses this we merit political death." HANNA will know his fate soon. The sentiment of the whole country is against him. In a reeentj interview the old chairman of the Be- pubilcan State committee, Charles Kurtz, said: "Banna is beaten. Nothing can prevent it. Were I to leave for Egypt today the result would be the same. The men who will vote against Hanna are determined, and nothing will move them. The time is not yet ripe for a public announcement of the anti-Hanna strength and plans, but it will aoou be here." But Mr. Kurtz may be over sanguine. Hanna is backed by plenty of money and the administration will set apart many official positions for his disposal. JBanna is autocratic, too, and will drive the recalcitrant legislators into line. But he has a big fight on his hands. THERE is a good deal of discussion now going on over the matter or pensions and some strange facts are revealed. During the war between the states there were enlisted In the union armies 2,100,000 men. Of these 210,000 deserted, 400.000 were killed or died in hospitals from diseases contracted In the service. There were 250,000 "hundred day" men, who never saw a battle and an least 100,000 men enlisted who never went to the front. Suotracting the total number of those killed and not sprvlnp from the total of those enlisted, leaves a balance of 1,040,000 soldiers who came out of the war, having done service for their country entitling them to pensions. Estimating the death rate at 1 per cent a year, the number of surviving soldiers at the present day would be about 700,000. But there are 700,000 names on the pension rolls and 250,000 more names of applicants awaiting the action of the pension department. Surely there Is something wrong somewhere. There cannot be 250,000 more survivors of the war than there are soldiers who survived. It is a well-known fact, too, that there are thousands of veterans who have never applied for a pension.

BUY NOW NONE RESERVED A SEW TEAK'S STORT FROM THE FEESCH BT rEA:;cois COPPEE. Every one in the huge Iblock of workmen's dwellings in the Rue des Lambes, where Tony Robcck had occupied a room for six months, believed him to be a widower, though it was not supposed he had been one very long, since his little boy, hardly 6 years old, with whom he lived aloue, was always as well dressed as if he were cared for by a mother. However, neither father nor eon wore crape on the hat or sleeve.

In the evening, when his day's work- was finished, Tony would call for Adrian and then go shopping, leading the little fellow by the hand. The purchases necessary for their dinner would be carried in Tony's basket to his lodging, and he would be seen no more till the next day. Tony Robeck was not yet 40 and still a good looking man. Every Sunday father and son, clean as new pins, used to take a walk. They had been met at the museums and the zoological gardens, and they bad been seen also before dinner time in a little cafe in the neighborhood, where Tony allowed himself his single debanch of the week—a glass of s.bsinth, which he sipped, while Adrian, sitting beside him on the settee, would look at the pictures in the papers. "No, " the concierge nsed to say sentimentally to the neighbors, "the widower will not marry again. The other Sunday we met in a path in the Mont Parnasse cemetery. It is doubtless there that his wife is buried. It was painful to see him with his orphan sou by his side. He must have adored his dead wife. He is inconsolable.'' Alas, yes, Tony Kobeck bad dearly loved his wife and was inconsolable at having lost her, but he was not a widower. His was a sad and simple history. Tony lost his heart to a little artificial flower maker of 19, good doubtless, but very frivolous, thinking of nothing but how to dress smartly on very little. Tony had some pavings with which to start housekeeping comfortably, and he married his Clementine. For a time all went well. How they loved one another 1 They had two rooms j on the fifth floor in the Boulevard Port j Royal, with a small balcony, from which there was a view of all Paris. They were so comfortable at home that they rarely went out. A nice breakfast in the summer time, with the window open upon the town and the clear blue sky, and then, while Tony was lingering over his coffee and smoking a cigarette, Clementine would water the fiowers in the boxes on the balcony, often being surprised by Tony with a kiss. After a time they were blessed with a. little one, but it lived only a year, dying at its nurse's at Waigenay. They were consoled, however, by the idr?** s>f Adrian, whom Clementine brought up herself, quitting the workroom in _ order to do this and taking in work at i home. She earned only half as much as i previously, but still she dressed as -well and gayly as ever, playing the lady as far as possible when she went for a walk in the gardens of the Luxembourg with Adrian in his little wicker perambulator. Gradually this costly finery was the means of leading them into embarrassment, and it was in vain that Tony worked like four men., ou day and night shifts as well, to prevent their getting seriously into debt.

O'ne Person In Eyery Ponr Suffers From Piles. About one parson in every four suffers Trotn some form of rectal disease. The most common and annoying is itching piles, indicated by warmth, slight moisture, and intense, uncontrollable itching in the parts affected. The usual treatment has been some sfmple ointment or salve which sometimes gives temporary relief, but nothing like a permanent cure can be expected from such superficial treatment. The only permanent cure for itching piles yet discovered is the Pyramid Pile Cure, not only for itching piles, but for every other form of piles—blind, bleeding or protruding. The first application gives instant relief and the continued use for a short time causes a permanent re- moviil of the tumors or the small parasites which cause the intense itch- Ing and discomfort oT itching piles. Many physicians for a long time supposed that the remarkable reliel afforded by the Pyramid Pile Cnr« was because it was supposed to contain cocaine, opium or similar drags, bat such, is not the case. A recent careful analysis of the remedy showed It to be absolutely free from »uy cocaine, opium, or ID fact any poisonous, injurious drugs whatever.

' One evening Tony, carrying his son, whom he hud brought from the day nursery on his way home from his \ work, fou.ad upon the mantelpiece a letter, from which, when he opened it, fell Clementine's wedding ring. In the few lines she bade him and Adrian "adieu and besougut their pardon. Tony was crushed by the blow. He felt more pain than anger at his loss and wept bitterly. Clementine had fled in the first days of May, just as the odor of the lilacs was abroad. Often Adrian asked: "Where is mother? Will she come again soon?" And Tony conic only kiss the little one and say, "1 do not know." When the term Tony had taken the apartments, for was at an end, in July, he sold the greater part of his goods to pay the debts and went to live in the Eue des Lambes, getting as far away n.s | he could from the old associations. He hearc: uo more of Clementine till New Year's eve. On this day for several years he had had the habit of going with his wife to place a modest wreath on the tomb of little Feii:;, their firstborn. For the first time Tony had only his little Adrian to accompany him. Entering the gate of the ceracitery under a dull winter sky, his thoughts moro than ever reverted to his absent wife. "Where is she now?" thought he. '' What has become of her?'' They had some trouble to Slid the little tomb, and on arriving before it hej started, surprised, for there upon, tun j stone lay three or four new toys, such j as would" be given to children—a truui- j pet, a punch, a dog and a whistle. ' "Ah! Toys!" cried Adrian joyously, | while his father hastily read the writ- \ ing in a hand he knew so well ou a. • small piece of paper pinned to one of. them, "For Adrian, from his brother: Felix." Then he felt his son press' against, him and heard him murmur in ; a frightened tone. "Mother!" And some space aw:;y, kneeling by a group of cypresses, he saw a woman, poorly dressed, with pale sunken eyes, \vho held out. toward him her clasped and supplicating hands. Quivering in pity at the forlorn and miserable condition of the woman he had so fondly loved, he gently pushed his little sou toward her, saying, "Adrian, go and kiss your mother." Clementine seized her child in a wild 1 embrace, kissed him twice, then rose; and tamed toward her husband with au impioring look. "How good yon are!" she murmured. But he was already near her and answered in a dry and almost harsh manner. "Don't speak. Give me your arm." It was not far from Spry > s Broadway and Pearl Streets ' The "Domestic" Office.
